Book Review: Ardent Justice by Peter Taylor-Gooby*

Could you hate someone enough to kill them? And what if they deserve it? 

Ade is a tax inspector. She believes the money she raises pays for a decent NHS and adequate public services. She hates the City of London, the endless corruption, the bland assumption that tax is for the little people. She hates the casual sexism. the smug self-assurance, the inviolability of the men she deals with, and the odd certainty that nothing you can do will ever touch them.

She meets Paul, an Occupy activist who works with homeless people. As their love for each other grows, they find real fulfilment in fighting for the rights of ordinary people, such as Gemma, a homeless single parent. Then she has a chance to do something of permanent value, but at great cost to her own integrity.

I Would Miss* || With Flogas

Coconut Tree on Shore during Daylight

Imagine you find yourself on a desert island. I don't know how you got there; shipwreck, maybe, or a plane crash. Those are cheery thoughts. Anyway, you're on a desert island. It's just you, the sand and the waves, crashing upon the shore. What would you miss? Here's what I would miss...

Garden Inspiration* || With Fishpools

*This is a collaborative post*

Today is the first day of Spring! And I couldn't be happier. The last week, or two, has been delightful; milder temperatures, and sunnier days. Now that Spring is here, Fishpools have got me thinking about my garden. My fiance and I have lived in our house for almost four years now, and we've not touched the garden since we moved in. It's time to get some inspiration and get our garden Summer, ready. And today I'm going to share that inspiration with you!

Haul Post (Part One!)

I've been taking the term 'shop till you drop' a little too literally lately! I love sharing my purchases with you, here on the blog. And my haul posts are always popular. So here's part one of two, because I have rather been splashing the cash lately. Oops?

I've had this book on my wishlist for a while; it's so colourful and, well, HAPPY! I am all about those self-help books right now, and I feel like this will be a really interesting read. And for only £8 in Asda/Tesco/Sainsbury's (I can't remember which store now!), you can't go wrong.

Book Review: Lying In Wait by Liz Nugent

A dark, twisty domestic noir from the author hailed as Ireland's answer to Gillian Flynn.

"My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it."

Lydia Fitzsimons lives in the perfect house with her adoring husband and beloved son. There is just one thing Lydia yearns for to make her perfect life complete, though the last thing she expects is that pursuing it will lead to murder. However, needs must - because nothing can stop this mother from getting what she wants...

Picture Perfect* || With Printiki

It's no big secret that I love my cat. He's featured in plenty of blog posts and, if you follow me on Instagram (cheeky little plug!), you'll probably be sick of seeing photos of him by now! But I'm not; I can't get enough of my handsome little tuxedo cat. So when Printiki* asked me if I'd be interested in reviewing some of their prints, I knew exactly what photos I wanted printing!
